The team at Tonesmiths are hands down the best guys I've worked with in buying gear. They genuinely care about what you are looking for and what will work best for your sound. When I was looking at getting my Bad Cat, they spent so much time with me on the phone or e-mail, talking through ideas for what would work best with my set up. That's the thing that really sets them a part… the personality of the team. Loved working with these guys!

I really admire Tonesmiths because of their heart for musicians in the worship community and how genuine he is about taking care of them. Tonesmiths is always going out of their way to make sure I am completely satisfied with the gear I request, and I know they do the same for the others that work with them. They are very knowledgable and can always educate me on products I’m interested in, and will also let me know if there is anything new that I should have! I have been completely satisfied with all the amps, pedals, guitars that I have used through Tonesmiths. They are very passionate, kind, and great friends.

Tonesmiths was sent to me through a friend (James Duke) a couple of months ago, and I knew instantly that these were the guys I was going to like working with. Their knowledge of gear and tone shaping was apparent right off the bat. They truly loves guitars and guitar players. I deal with so many brand reps and Tonesmiths is so much more- friends first.

I have known the Tonesmiths for a few years now. We met through a mutual friend in the P&W community. After knowing them for just a short period, some things became very clear.
1) They know gear (they spend countless hours reading/researching/experimenting with amps/pedals/guitars/sounds).
2) They love God, and they love people. The Tonesmiths takes great pleasure in serving both God and people… and they serve them really well!
I really appreciate the lengths that Tonesmiths has gone to to help me carve out a tone that I absolutely love. Every time I have a question about something, they're on the case and will always give me the answer or at least point me in the right direction in my quest for that specific answer. But most of all I admire their character and integrity. The P&W community has been tremendously blessed by Tonesmiths, and I don’t think it will ever be the same.

Let me start off by saying that after working with Tonesmiths I have grown to be a life long fan and friend of their work, company, and the people! These guys are awesome! They have, and I believe always will, take every stride necessary to completely satisfy their customers. I have had nothing but great experiences in buying my amp and my friends amp through them. They took the time to listen to my needs and my friends (very long) list of needs. and were very patient to answer each question and get us the best amps to suit our needs.
Great guys all around, Tonesmiths rocks! If you do business with anyone, do it with them! Bad Cats all the way! Sooo everwhelmed by the blessing this company has been too me! They knows their stuff. So check them out and get you an amp or guitar that will change your life! You wont regret doing business with these guys. I'm very blessed to say i am a proud supporter of Tonesmiths and consider them friends.

I can remember being eight years old when I fell in love with the Stratocaster. It’s taken the rest of my forty years of life to find the tone that represents the beauty and style of that instrument. Tone takes practice, good pickups, acoustic sustain, a good sense of musicality and importantly a great amplifier.
The magic of the Bad Cat Classic Deluxe paired with a great Stratocaster is unparalleled. The tone is woody and the amp is musical with great spank I also am particularly impressed with the amount of bass response which you don’t usually find in a 20 watt amp. The overdrive tone is very thick and clean tones are lush and beautiful and I fall into the mix with presence and clarity. The amplifier inspires you to play and the longer you play the better it sounds. Thank you so much Tonesmiths for understanding my playing style and applying your knowledge and passion to help me select the Classic Deluxe!! it gives my beloved Strats the best tone I've ever had!!!

My experience with Tonesmiths was great! They matched prices for me to make a dream come true. Tonesmiths is all about customer service and made me a priority. I received my amp a week ahead of schedule with a free effects loop installed. The open communication between Tonesmiths and Bad Cat was great. I'll continue to buy any and all Bad Cat products through them.
Colton Williams Sound Engineer at Epipheo
Tonesmiths has been able to answer the most technical of questions about every product I have asked about with great ease and has been able to explain in real terms that a lay person could understand. They have always provided a high level of communication, making himself available when others wouldn't be. It is clear that his chief concern is helping you achieve the tone you need with the right gear to accomplish it.
They are honest and honorable men who truly has your best interest at heart and will tell you the truth when you don't need something. They have been able to effectively diagnose and assess my needs, and provided great and timely service while helping me meet them. Tonesmiths has proven time and time again to be a great people to work with, and they will be the first people I talk to for my gear and tone needs in the future.

This is what I think about "The Tonesmiths"...
They go the extra mile and beyond to help. It doesn't matter who you are, they strive to assist and consult in any way he possibly can. I've come to know them over the past year and I have mad respect for these guys. They simply cares about musicians. Their love and dedication to the music community is über evident in how they speak and what they do for you as a client, friend, or fellow musician. Tonesmiths exemplifies Christ in every way they possibly can. Whether it’s selling you a product, chatting for hours about the perfect guitar, or just life conversations... Tonesmiths are good guys.

Tonesmiths is not just another music store, it's the place to go when you need a personable and knowledgeable sales staff, the best in pro gear, and a shared passion for music. They were great to deal with, and they responded to my questions and returned my emails promptly. And buying gear from them was easier than playing a Pentatonic Scale! They are all about great gear, great prices and great service. And the new Website is fantastic too.

Tonesmiths got me a great deal on a Bad Cat Cub X that had recently come back from one of Bad Cat’s endorsed artists, and did a great job working with the guys at Bad Cat to get all of the options and features that I needed set up. Great prices and top notch customer service from Tonesmiths.
As a serious recording and touring musician I can honestly say the Tonesmiths are the gusy to go to if you want professional and very personalized service. Some of the most easiest guys to work with, and they really know their stuff. They not only took the time to answer all my questions in an extremely detailed and timely manner, they were proactive in giving suggestions, and solutions.
The Tonesmiths have been such a pleasure to work with. Their knowledge on amps, effects, and tubes has really helped me out in many instances. They have helped me find the missing pieces for my sound. I will be a long time customer for sure! I can't thank you enough for all you've done. You have become dear friends!
